DMC: "The Game of Getting Lost" by Elizabeth Steinglass
THE GAME OF GETTING LOST
Under the palms and banana leaves
along the winding trails,
I ran ahead of my mom and dad
and found myself alone.
On my own in the giant world,
I chose which way to go.
I crossed the swaying wooden bridge,
I passed the waterfall,
I smelled the lemony golden elves,
I petted the pompom tree,
and when I felt I’d been gone too long,
I turned myself around.
Spying my parents along the path,
I skipped away again,
playing the game of getting lost
within the greenhouse walls.
